    Among our clients at work, we have a : Ms Dehoir - Pronounced De-Whore (which sounds even better in an Irish accent) Ms Dyke Ms Gash Mr Slaughter (Someone should try set him up with Ms Dehoir- their kids would have the greatest double-barrel surname ever)

    Now you know how I feel - X 24 If there are errors, they are likely to be in what I posted on here, rather than in the actual scores, as they are done up on a spreadsheet. I will be double-checking that in detail at the end of the game, so if there are some minor errors, I will pick them up then. Out of curiosity, did any of your three tallies match what I have on the scoreboard?

    I've also just realised that I forgot to actually post the scoreboard Here it is: PEDRO67 118 17 Hits CAPTAIN CHORIZO 110 15 Hits THE OLD LADY 102 14 Hits THE OLD CREM 101 14 Hits BUFFALO PHIL 99 16 Hits GCREPTILE 97 17 Hits BOOK 94 16 Hits MSC 89 14 Hits HELL 89 13 Hits PERHAPS 88 17 Hits BIBLIOGRYPHON 84 14 Hits WANNAMAKER 82 14 Hits AN FEAR BEAG 81 17 Hits DOULTON 80 14 Hits LIZ LEMON 79 12 Hits ANNAMI 79 11 Hits THE UNKNOWN MAN 75 11 Hits SALMON MOUSSE 73 13 Hits GREAT UNCLE BULGARIA 70 12 Hits JOEY RUSS 68 11 Hits TOAST 65 11 Hits YOUNG WILLZ 58 7 Hits MARINISIA 56 11 Hits GOOSEBERRY CRUMBLE 43 6 Hits

    So, that is all the boring stuff out of the way. Now for the only bit that people actually care about - who is winning the bloody thing! We have a clear leader with @Pedro67 out in front, with @CaptainChorizo ready to pounce in second, and The Old pair of Lady and Crem close together in third and fourth. @Gooseberry Crumble's cunning strategy of ignoring all the popular picks (you know, the ones that are actually likely to die) seems to have backfired as the lie in a distant last place. 4 players are tied with most hits: @Pedro67 who leads with 118, @gcreptile who is on 97, @Perhaps on 88 and me, who has managed to muster up a mere 81 points from the same number of hits as the leader. @gcreptile was right - this really is a shitty scoring system

    Indeed he was. My own shorthand failed me, as I translated the PE in my notes to Pedro rather than Perhaps in my post. I will edit it now. The correct points had already been awarded, so no harm done.

    HARES DEATH POOL 2022

    Still no further news on the fate of Diane Berberian, but we do have the death of a couple of old dears to shake things up a little. Ancient actress Marsha Hunt left the screen on September 7th, and the following day, the QEII sank. Apparently this is the most significant death in the history of the world, ever. What I do know is that it is significant in this pool, which let's face it, is all that matters. @Wormfarmerhad a Hunt and Queenie double, to move ominously into second place, and with a Joker still to be played, is possibly the favourite to win at this stage. Her Maj's global popularity was matched in this pool, and her place on the crowdsourced ZZZ team, keeps that team up in third. As usual @Death Impendsis not too far behind, with Marsha keeping keeping her in the Hunt in 4th. @etib80 and Famous4Eva pick up their second hit of the game, to exit the bottom 5, where @Doultonnow props up the field. September 7th - Marsha Hunt September 8th - Queen Elizabeth II Top 5 is as follows, full scoreboard is on page 1: An Fear Beag (1798 points) 9 hits [Bill Turnbull*, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Kane Tanaka, Michael O’Connor, Mikhail Gorbachev, Mollie Walker, Olivia Newton-John, Tom Smith, Tom Weiskopf] Wormfarmer (1745points) 13 hits [Art Rupe, Boris Pahor, Everett Lee, Francis Jackson, Gail Halvorsen, Gary Burgess, Guy Lafleur, James Lovelock, Luis Echeverria, Marsha Hunt, Queen Elizabeth II, Susie Steiner, Tom Weiskopf] ZZZ - Boring Predictable Team (1717 points) 11 hits [Bill Turnbull, Gary Burgess, George Perez, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Kane Tanaka, Mikhail Gorbachev, Olivia Newton-John, Queen Elizabeth II, Susie Steiner, Tom Parker, Tom Smith] Death Impends (1565 points) 10 hits [Art Rupe, Bill Pitman, Carleton Carpenter, George Perez, Joe Krush, Kane Tanaka, Larry Storch*, Marsha Hunt, Monty Norman, Nehemiah Persoff] Joey Russ (1306 points) 9 hits [George Perez*, James Lovelock, Jana Bennett, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Kane Tanaka, Mikhail Gorbachev, Olivia Newton-John, Saturnino de la Fuente Garcia, Tom Parker]

    HARES DEATH POOL 2022

    That's a fair point. Reading through my post again, it comes across as FAR more judgemental than it ought to have been - sorry about that. (Note to self - don't post in the early morning, when in a grumpy mood due to lack of sleep). Taste is completely subjective in any case. Personally, I don't find dead-pooling to be in bad taste at all. In the "real world", people are always talking about someone who are sick and dying, and predicting when they will die ("I say he'll be gone by Christmas"). Dead-pooling is just an extension of that, but even less morbid as we are usually talking about people we don't know. To me, most of the time we are just noting peoples death and celebrating their lives. Since joining this site, I've read about the fascinating lives of so many people that I never would have heard of otherwise.

    HARES DEATH POOL 2022

    No, that will definitely not count. As Joey said, that appears to be a bot site, referencing a Youtube video which would come under the "Social media, personal blogs etc." heading, which is not acceptable. I suspect that it is genuine and that Diane Berberian is dead, in which case something suitable should come up in the next few days. This pool does have a very low bar for obits. Incidentally, the "guy whose eyes look in completely opposite directions", is Dr. Randy Pierce, CEO of Future in Sight, a charity which provides services for blind and visually impaired people in New Hampshire. Dr. Pierce himself is blind, so your description of him is in fairly poor taste.
